**SOLD** 1980 Lotus Eclat


1980 Lotus Eclat

Another Lotus from the renowned Norwich based factory. Model 521 in white with a pale green velour interior although at some time the recaro seats have been fitted. Bodywork in above average condition and not showing any crazing which is usual for this model. Engine bay is tidy but would benefit from a little TLC. Engine starts readily and runs sweetly. Owned by the vendor since 2005 and sensibly reserved.

NB:- The car started willingly and sounded really sweet upon arrival, arguably the sweetest we've heard and the felt 'tight', clutch, steering, controls etc... it gave the impression it would drive and perform nicely. Disappointingly after being stopped / started by various 'interested' parties it now requires a good warm up and blow out. I have no doubt that after a good run it would return to the sweet sounding car it was on arrival. Has the makings of a very good car. DM.
